While the news was sad it was also a time to reflect on the great memories that the venues generated for people in the Oulton Broad and Lowestoft area “It has been a pleasure to provide several venues for people to enjoy over the years. From celebrity nights, boat parties, live music and celebration parties in our function room, it’s been a fantastic time.
